@Evleaks is a well-known gadget leaker on Twitter who hasn’t failed to disappoint with the release of specifications that suggest Google’s smartwatch is on the horizon. Online sources seem to think it will happen at the Google I/O developer conference, which will be held in San Francisco at the end of June.

While the release date is speculation, actual information available is that the watch will have a 1.65-inch LDC display with 280×280 resolution, 512MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage. Key features that indicate how the device will perform are still unknown, such as the processor and battery size.


Following on from earlier rumors, @Evleaks also claimed that the watch will be made in partnership with LG. As for the software, it’s speculated that Google’s smartwatch will be based on the virtual assistant, Google Now, its Siri equivalent.

Readwrite also reported that Sundar Pichai, the Google executive in charge of Android, Chrome and apps, said that the company will release a wearables software developer kit within the next two weeks.

How well the smartwatch performs, what kind of functionality it has, how flexible it is for developers, and various other factors will be what determines whether or not this latest offering from Google is a success.
